Lyrics

Too Close For Comfort

We sat among the bluebells
On the embankment
Close to the track
The steam train was approaching
Too close for comfort
Looking back

We swam across the river
Ate stolen apples
Straight from the trees
We cupped our hands
And drank the water
From contaminated streams

Too close for comfort
Innocent and naive
Too close for comfort
Too young to be
Wandering free


Running in and out
Of summer showers
Intrigued by the dividing line
Back where simple pleasures
Filled the hours
As clear as day after all this time

Climbing over
Barbed wire fencing
Not comprehending
The dangers within
Accepting lifts
From total strangers
Entrusting the world
That we lived in

"Too close for comfort"
That's what the old folks
would say
"Too close for comfort...
One day you'll find out
The hard way"


DARK NIGHTS, OLD BIKE
NO LIGHTS, FAST CARS
NO WHITE LINES
NO MOON, NO STARS
WRONG TIME, WRONG PLACE
NO SAVIOURS GRACE
I'LL NEVER SEE YOUR
SMILING FACE AGAIN

I n s t r u m e n t a l

"Too close for comfort"
That's what the old folks
would say
(we were)
T
oo close for comfort
I was gonna marry you
One day


Now I sit amidst
The dusty bluebells
Down by the rusty railway track
I feel your hand
Upon my shoulder
Too close for comfort
Looking back

Looking back...looking back

Too Close For Comfort
Looking back...
Too Close For Comfort
Looking back...

yeah yeah yeah yeah
Looking back

Too Close For Comfort
yeah
Looking back
